It's ALIVE! Well, not quite, actually. CES 2012 is still not officially up and running, but that doesn't mean Team Engadget isn't crammed in its entirety into a doublewide outside the rapidly-developing showroom floor, ready and willing to pounce on news even before it happens. This is the first of many, many podcasts we'll be sending your way over the course of the week in a variety of sensory media, so clear your cache, free up that hard drive space, you know the drill - whatever it takes to get amped for the madness. We'll be there for you all week long.

Host: Tim Stevens, Brian Heater, Darren Murph
Producer: Trent Wolbe
Music: Party Rock Anthem
